For a while now, there has been a knocking noise occurring when I turn left - I assumed this was the right CV joint wearing out. However I briefly looked at the cv boot yesterday and it seems fine (no cracks, holes etc).
Secondly, I was driving at about 80 kph and the same wheel started making a rubbing/grinding noise. As I take my foot off the pedal it seems to stay constant, and once I depress the pedal it goes away occasionally, depending on the road. Every time I drive and get to a higher speed this noise occurs, and it is relative to the rotation of the wheel. However on short drives in low speeds it doesn't usually happen.
Finally, the rubber on the top of the linkage rod to the stabil. bar has split (will upload a photo).
Are any of these noises related to the wheel bearing, CV joint, or the linkage rod?
And should I be driving it with these noises?
Any help is appreciated!
